AVON, Ohio – Rocky River picked up a pair of non-conference victories in a tri-match at Red Tail G.C. on Wednesday.
The Pirates carded three scores within four strokes of par on the 3,213-yard outward nine of the par-36 Avon layout. River’s four low scores were posted by Ethan Mylett (38), Mac Milenius (39), Will Bennett (40), and Tommy Kelly (44). Their total of 161 bested a 174 carded by Lutheran West and a 182 registered by Bay.
Mylett birdied his first hole of the day – the par-5 sixth upon a shotgun start – and would birdie his final two holes as well. River’s medalist left little finishing work on his last hole, the par-3 fifth: Mylett knocked his tee shot to within a foot of the cup. Upon knocking in the short birdie putt, Mylett lowered his season average to 86.1.
Milenius constructed his 39 out of five pars and a birdie (on the par-4 first). Bennett logged six pars as part of his 4-over 40.
The Pirates are now 10-3 over 13 matches this season.
